The futility of The Battlefield FB group

Apparently, Paul Hartley blocked me from further discussion of his OP about dinosaurs and gladiators before I could ask if he thought “The Battlefield” is a “false flag” group. Does anyone else think that?   If so, do you think it can survive publication of experimental evidence that links responsive supramolecular systems to stepwise changes in the assembly of metal complexes via induction of a light-driven rotary motor scaffold akin to the bacterial flagellum of P. fluorescens? See: Dynamic control…

De novo gene creation: Ignoring the experimental evidence

Regularly Whiffing Essential Oils Can Retrain Lost Sense of Smell It’s not entirely clear how olfactory training works on a neurological level. Olfactory training links the experience-dependent de novo creation of G protein-coupled receptors to supercoiled DNA. Conserved molecular mechanisms link food odors and pheromones from the innate immune system to the physiology of reproduction. Simply put, autophagy protects all organized genomes from virus-driven entropy and all pathology via the de novo creation of odor receptor genes. See for proof:…

Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (6)

See: Energy-dependent purifying selection / autophagy (5) Simply put all aspects of biophysically constrained energy-dependent cell type differentiation must first be linked from the physiology of reproduction to ecological adaptations, or they must be linked from energy theft to the evolution of pathology. See for contrast and comparsion: Finding your diagnosis in the brave new world of genetics-based medicine by John Hewitt Excerpts: Typically all they have is a stack of diffuse paper reports and xeroxed publications from the primary…

Epigenetics and autophagy vs mutations and evolution (7)

RNA interference (RNAi) fails to protect all cell types from virus-driven energy theft. The effect on some cell types cannot be controlled. That’s because nutrient energy-dependent endogenosymbiosis and the pheromones-controlled physiology of reproduction protect the organized genomes of species from microbes to humans. Billions of waster dollars have been spent with no end to the waste in sight — until the Trump administration stops it. As that begins to happen, see: tRNA-mediated codon-biased translation in mycobacterial hypoxic persistence (open access)…

The Aquatic Ape / Waterside Ape divergence

See also: The Aquatic Ape: New evidence? (9/8/16) Walt Patrick  Now that I’m semi-retired…. My major focus is the development of village-scale energy sovereignty. I believe that sustainable community stands on an interlocking foundation of effective and sustainable energy systems, and I’m working to develop ways that a community can meet its energy needs without having to rely on multi-national energy corporations. My comment: Thanks to Walt for introducing me to Elaine Morgan’s work. He loaned me his copy of…

Linking RNA structure to function

A G-Rich Motif in the lncRNA Braveheart Interacts with a Zinc-Finger Transcription Factor to Specify the Cardiovascular Lineage was reported on September 8, 2016 as: Linking RNA structure and function Excerpt 1) Learning more about how lncRNAs control cell differentiation could offer a new approach to developing drugs for patients whose hearts have been damaged by cardiovascular disease, aging, or cancer. The insult to the intelligence of all serious scientists who have linked energy-dependent changes from angstroms to ecosystems in…

Plant microRNAs slow virus-driven aging

Six plant extracts delay yeast chronological aging through different signaling pathways The evolutionarily conserved nutrient-sensing signaling pathways that accelerate chronological aging in yeast (Figure 9) are known to stimulate chronological senescence and geroconversion of post-mitotic human cells; these pathways are likely to expedite organismal aging and cancer development in humans [87-93]. There is no experimental evidence of biologically-based cause and effect that starts with the conservation of nutrient-sensing pathways. The nutrient-sensing pathways link the de novo creation of G protein-coupled…

Antithetical conclusions (7)

Streamlining the E.coli Genetic Code Once the E. coli genome is pared down to 57 codons, the seven blank codons can be reintegrated and used to introduce nonstandard amino acids, the researchers have proposed; this would open the door to creating a wider range of proteins for industrial applications. A recoded genome also imparts resistance to viral infection and can be used for biocontainment: the DNA incorporated from wild-type E. coli or viruses can’t be used to build proteins successfully…

Antithetical conclusions (5)

Something is antithetical when it is in complete and utter opposition to the character of something. For example, see: Small population size? It doesn’t have to mean that species can’t adapt to environmental change. A new study shows that small populations of species can still adapt and respond to natural selection. Natural selection for energy-dependent codon usage in the context of the physiology of reproduction is the only way known to serious scientists for a species to ecologically adapt. Theorists…

Antithetical conclusions (4)

Evidence for sex-specific genetic architectures across a spectrum of human complex traits …will need to disentangle whether sex genetic heterogeneity may arise as a consequence of interactions with genetic loci located on the sex chromosomes, differences in gene control due to differences in the sex-specific cellular environment, or more general differences in environmental exposures between the sexes. Nutrient energy-dependent pheromone-controlled sex differences in the cell types of species from yeasts to humans link changes in the microRNA/messenger RNA balance and…
